61.5

Vettori to Malinga, no run, flatter and drifting into leg stump, Malinga backs away but defends well in the end

61.6

Vettori to Malinga, no run, tosses this one up, Malinga doesnt read it well and goes back, the ball lands on middle and off and spins away, and he manages to just dab the bat down on it, well bowled

Sri Lanka 251/8   SL Malinga 0* (2b)

62.6

Bond to Malinga, no run, short of a good length and pacy, but Malinga does well to get behind it and keep it down in front of square leg, Sangakkara doesnt want the run

Sri Lanka 258/8   SL Malinga 0* (3b)

63.4

Vettori to Malinga, no run, ripper! Pitches outside off stump and spins past Malinga's backfoot prod

63.5

Vettori to Malinga, OUT, gone! Flat outside off stump, Malinga comes forward and pushes at it, and Sinclair at silly point holds onto it, that was just off the bat and into his hands, tame dismissal and Malinga goes

SL Malinga c Sinclair b Vettori 0 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 259/9   SL Malinga 0 (5b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
